There are a couple of minor problems with it, most notably the fact
that since you don't do the set-child-retval-to-0 magic that the
fork/vfork libc asm stubs do, child_return()/cpu_fork() on all platforms
need to make sure that the child's retval register has 0 in it.  I've
made this change for the platforms which didn't do that (Alpha and VAX),
and have made a few other tweaks to which header files things go into.

I'll try and get it integrated soon.
